Fig. S1. The transcript abundance of IPF-469. (A) In early-log phase cultures of Microcystis sp. strain GK normalized to the level observed in stationary phase cultures. Both treatments were normalized to untreated controls in Microcystis sp. strain GK exposed to spent medium from Scenedesmus sp. strain HUJI (S. HUJI) or to its own cell-debris (‘cell-extract’). In late log phase mutant ΔmcyB normalized against its WT, M. aeruginosa PCC 7806. No significant difference was observed between the treatments (B). M. aeruginosa PCC 7806 grown under light/dark cycles, the data were re-generated from Straub and colleagues (2011).
